'At a time when official European Union cultural policy promotes unity in diversity, Perla Innocenti's volume offers an insightful new dimension for one of the key domains generating this cultural diversity: migration. Her concept of migrating heritage is novel and nuanced. Her focus on networks is exceptionally productive. This book is a must-read for heritage scholars, practitioners and policymakers.'
Helaine Silverman, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA
'Every day we are in the midst of complex flows of information, knowledge and culture. Innocenti offers a robust and thoughtful account of the ways that networks make European cultural and heritage institutions work and that increasingly shape our working identities. This excellent book interrogates how cultural networks are practiced, the challenges they create, and potentials they offer towards addressing issues of diversity, mobilities and intercultural dialogue.'
Mike Robinson, University of Birmingham, UK
'At a time when intercultural understanding is more important than ever, this innovative book combines rigorous policy analysis and expert testimony with case studies from across Europe. As well as providing timely insight into migrating heritage, it offers inspiration for both policymakers and cultural institutions.'
Mark O'Neill, Glasgow Life, UK
'Europe since the last millennium has been buzzing with attempts to network heritage, especially in the service of creating a more united Europe . Perla Innocenti does a valuable service for those working in this field in reporting on a wide range of case-studies, highlighting the multiple forms that such networking can take, as well as the challenges that networking projects face, and the potential that they hold for contributing to more cultural connection in Europe in the future.'
